Acetyl Carnitine (Alcar)
Acetyl Carnitine (ALCAR) Powder
Acetyl Carnitine, an acetylated version of Carnitine base helps supply the brain with energy by improving energetics in the mitochondrion, the cell’s energy generator. Acetyl-L-Carnitine is said to alleviate the effects of aging and disease on mitochondria, while increasing the mitochondria’s potential to burn fat.
Acetyl-L-Carnitine (which is reported to be the most effective form of carnitine) has been shown in clinical studies to benefit cognitive ability, memory and mood, however it’s major benefit for those involved in weight training and exercise is that it allows the body to use stored fat for energy more easily, which is somewhat supported in research.
Acetyl Carnitine has been shown to assist in lowering blood glucose and improve blood vessel health, this is particularly so for those with weakened cardiac systems.

Alcar was good
Seals came apart on the choline and the smaller bags had to put them into other containers

I have been using Acetyl Carnitine for 22 weeks, on a low calorie diet 1600 - 1800 per day, using alcar in the morning 2.5g and midday 2.5g in a protien fruit smoothy
I have stripped over 33kg

Using it on advice to help with fat loss now I'm leaner. Seems to be doing what it says it does so I'm happy. The usual good value from Bulk compared to competitors. Do yourself a favour and get some of their BCAA flavouring along with this, because by itself ALCAR tastes pretty nasty.

I have it twice a day before my meals, and I'm full of energy all day, love it!

I purchased this product for its apparent stress management benefits. Very happy with it. I notice that my focus improves and I have less brain fog when I take regular doses.

Used Acetyl Carnitine on three occasions now and each time I've seen noticeable slimming around my waist. Taste isn't great, so make sure you have the chicken breast ready to eat after.

I've had this every morning for the past week so a little early to tell but so far I've had positive results

Great product, however it is not an amino acid, it is a an amino acid derivative and Pseudovitamin. I'd guess amino acid is written on the packaging just because it is derived from an amino acid.

Great product & cheap price. I have been using this product for last 3 week. It taste bad itself but i mix with protein and other stuff with chilled water. I am enjoyin this product now.

The taste isn't great but I mix it with a flavoured amino energy powder and it covers the taste completely. I'm using it during my first comp prep to assist with fat burning and whilst it's only been a couple of weeks so far, my body is responding well and I'm leaning out nicely.
